Target finds from the weekend and my furry depression busters

 Hi guys! I went to visit my daughter and grandson yesterday afternoon to get me some "Hunny time". Hunter is 6 and he and his momma just moved out in August  with my daughter starting grad school (UT Chemistry) and Hunter starting kindergarten. I miss them like crazy! We took a side trip to Target because I was running out of THIS fav lotion..Sonia Kushuk. I loooove this scent.

 Grapefruit, verbena, and musk.. (pamplemousse?) Yum. There are 3 other scents also, 2 were close runners up and one was a bit sweet for my taste (but my 12 yr old son Jack's fav of the 4!) I pointed them out to my daughter who had been asking about Christmas gifts ..there are other items in the line besides lotion. I'll be sniffing my hands all day!

 We also hit the dollar area and OMG! They have some really cute stuff. I need to go back and grab things for stocking stuffers!

 I got these things for me..cuuuuute pencils..baker's twine that I have no real purpose for but..a dollar. FYI it is also cheaper this way than their baker's wine in their gift wrap section. This is $1 for 15 yards and that is $2.99 for 25 yards (do the math..3 $1 ones is 45 different colors!)

 CUte mint green notecards with gold metallic dots. I will use these mailing Hunter notes/letters/pics.

 CUUUTE (notice a theme here) heart shaped push pins for my studio bulletin board.

 I got these to label the contents in my vintage suitcases/storage in my studio..vintage wall paper, maps, etc. The suitcases are red and white so these should look...wait for it...cute! Ed and I drug one of my vintage cabinets up there this was that heavy. No fights, minimal swearing (me), minimal blood (him) and one scratch in the floor (oopsie). I'll share pics when I get things back in it and on it.

The piroullines are for my son Jack as they are a fav of his (also $1 a box!) The oven mitt was in the holiday section and not $1..I think it was $4 but I love red and white polka dots and it was .....CUTE! Also my pups got ahold of my former fav oven mitt and chewed it up so....keeping this one out of reach! P.S.  I did not wander through the housewares section as I was obviously having a day with zero self control over "Oooh..cute!"

Speaking of the pups. These 2 have seriously been my anti depression pills lately..or maybe just pills. Having Hunter move out has been tough.If not for them I'd be home alone and probably curled up on the couch in yesterday's yoga pants. They put up with none of that nonsense though. If I lay down "for a minute" it is instant nose-ing and barking..and if that fails they go get (clean) dish scrubbies and potholders out of the laundry basket and shred them into 100 pieces on the living room floor. Thanks ladies for keeping me upright! Here they are snoozling on the floor on their blankies. I tried to sneak a pic but if Daisy hears the camera, she immediately poses! On to my day..hope you have a productive one! Til next time! Julia

Reason enough for me to jump out of bed and head to Tarjay. Thank you for all the yummy ideas. Enjoy a bit of quiet with tea.
